Do you have friends/family who do not share your religious beliefs? If so, how have you been able to work around the differences and still maintain a good relationship?
On SH I have almost 600 friends, and probably 98% of them do not share my
religious beliefs. I met many of them on the polls about Scientology–and most do not share my beliefs. Some said some pretty derogatory things until
we ‘talked’ and were able to see past the differences, clear up
some misunderstandings, and move on to find things that we had in common. While
we still disagree on many things, we have been able to gain a greater
understanding. Had we not pushed through those barriers, then I would never
have gotten to know them, and I think I would have missed out as there are many Christians, Atheists, Agnostics, Pagans etc., who are my SH friends who I really
admire. I have often said that in my life I am surrounded by people from all
walks of life, and find that my life has been enriched by knowing them.
Do you have friends and family members who do not hold the same religious
beliefs as you do? If so, how have you been able to work around the differences and still
maintain a good relationship?
